As a business owner in Idaho, you want your company to be the best it can be—providing top goods and services to happy customers via satisfied employees. Part of that goal is providing a place where employees can be safe from potential hazards at the workplace. One of the most common workplace accidents in Idaho is a slip and fall, and the injuries that can result from such an accident can have a lifetime impact on the victim.
Whether you have an Idaho office, storefront, factory or an entire multi-use building, it’s important to minimize the risks of slips, trips and falls. The good news is that you can hire a flooring inspector who is properly licensed and certified to investigate all the flooring at your facility.
Flooring inspectors are third party professionals with experience in identifying hazards when it comes to flooring. Resilient, laminate, hardwood, tile and carpet—all these types of flooring have their own particular issues when it comes to safety, walkability, wear and tear, and installation. A flooring inspector can determine whether a space is low risk or high risk, and provide suggestions to remedy any problems.
Here are just a few reasons that a flooring inspector may determine that a spot at your business is a high risk area:
- Inappropriate type of flooring for the foot traffic and/or job
- Poor product quality
- Poor flooring installation
- Harsh environmental conditions
- Inadequate preparation of the subfloor before the floor covering
- Improper cleaning products and techniques
- Lack of floor management program
- Damage to flooring, such as wear and tear or worse
With their specialized training and years of experience, a licensed flooring inspector will conduct a thorough investigation of any Idaho business. Then, you will receive a detailed report that will not only point out any at-risk areas, but provide suggestions and advice on how to take care of those areas. There’s no doubt about it, every Idaho business can benefit from the services of a certified flooring inspector.
